Growing and Sourcing Practices

  • All of our Vermont Vegetable Packages include 90% or more certified organic vegetables, certified organic berries, and certified organic herbs.

  • The remaining 10% is sourced from farmers and food makers who use sustainable and ethical practices that we stand behind. These foods include: mushrooms from AH Mushrooms, which are grown using organic methods, though not certified; Champlain Orchards pears, apples, and plums that are Eco Apple Certified; and vegetables grown using Vermont Ecologically Grown Practices from Lewis Creek Farm.

  • When sourcing meat and dairy items, we source food that was produced using methods that are healthy for those of us who eat the food, as well as protect Vermont's land, air, and water. We source food that food that was harvested ethically and responsibly, respecting farmers, animals, and Vermont's natural resources.
    • Beef is 100% grass fed and grass finished, from heritage breed animals (Health Hero Farm is also Humane Certified)
    • Pork is non-gmo-fed and pasture raised, from heritage breeds
    • Chicken is non-gmo-fed and pasture raised
    • Does' Leap Goat Cheese is certified organic and the goats are also pasture raised
    • Cheddar Cheese is from grass fed, Humane Certified, heritage Jersey cows
    • Butterworks Farm yogurt is 100% grass fed as well as certified organic
    • Salmon and Cod are wild caught in sustainably-managed fisheries off the coast of Alaska
  • When it comes to our specialty items, we use the same priorities listed above. We look for value-added products that come from Vermont farms, prioritize certified organic products, and always stand behind the quality, flavor, and value of every product.
